Hormel donates thousands of holiday hams to Washington families in need

During the holiday season, families in need aren’t always able to celebrate with a nutritious meal. Hormel is helping to change that for many families in Washington, by providing 7,600 Hormel hams to the Northwest Harvest food bank through their Hams for Hunger program. The company partnered with Safeway to support hunger-relief efforts throughout the state during the busy holiday season.

“The Hormel Cure 81 Hams for Hunger program highlights our long-standing relationship with Safeway, and we are honored to work together and make such a substantial contribution for those in need,” said Stephanie Postma, brand manager of meat products marketing at Hormel Foods.

In total, Hormel donated more than 55,000 hams nationwide — a retail value of $1.1 million — to families in need. More than $13 million in hams have been donated since the program’s inception, feeding tens of thousands of families.
